I have schizophrenia. I seem to need nicotine, whenever I go without it my mental health suffers dramatically. I'm 5 months smoke free now, but it took a full year of constant trying to get quit. I had to quit because I couldn't afford it (I'm on the pension)
After trying everything, in the end it was champix that got me smoke free, but after a month or so I was dying to buy cigarettes. I had vaping stuff as I'd tried to quit doing that previously, but all I did was smoke AND vape. But I'd been a month without either and had stopped the champix. So I decided that whenever I felt like a cigarette I would vape instead. I ordered nicotine from NZ and make my own fluid. Before long I was hooked on the vaping and not missing cigarettes at all.
It may not be ideal, and the purists of you out there may be thinking that I should be nicotine free. But I know my own mind and I am much better with nicotine on board. Now that I vape instead of smoking I'm only spending about 50 cents a day instead of $25. I don't smell, my sense of smell has come back amazingly. I feel good about myself for finally quitting and feel that I am safe from temptation. I couldn't think of anything worse that smoking a cigarette.
Vaping with nicotine really is just a type of NRT. If you can do without nicotine then you could wean off the vape.
good luck everyone
